The boat tour of a Ghent was such a treat! Very informative and we got to see the whole city from the water!
Wonderful tour of Ghent!
, Sep 2019
Tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, very fluent in our language (English), and helpful. We learned a lot of history, saw many beautiful buildings, all while relaxing on a river cruise. Excellent tour, highly recommend.
Super beau, mais on entendais pas grand chose

Super beau et intéressant, mais à l'arrière on entend très très mal le guide, malgré le micro... On a saisi seulement quelques bribes, mais le trajet est sympathique

Chouette activité d'une bonne durée mais difficulté de comprendre le guide en français. Nous avons perdu beaucoup de commentaires

Réservation faite à midi et excursion faite à 15h30. Tout était réglé dés notre arrivée. Juste montrer notre réservation et c'était dans la boite.
Buen paseo.

Muy buena experiencia. Fuimos el 31 diciembre porque el día de año nuevo no había plazas. Paseo muy agradable por los canales y el guía nos explicó muchas cosas que de otra forma no sabríamos. El tour fue en inglés y francés pero intentó hablar un poco en castellano te ofrecen guía en papel en español.
Superbe promenade en bateau et guide très intéressant
, Nov 2019
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cette promenade en bateau. Le guide, très sympathique parlait plusieurs langues et ses informations sur l'histoire de la ville étaient très intéressantes. Cette visite est un excellent avant-goût de la ville à faire de préférence en début de séjour pour pouvoir explorer, par la suite, les monuments et quartiers présentés. Un grand merci
